The diffienbachia plant is a great starter for those new to plants. Able to overcome most situations, this plant likes to be kept moist but not overwatered. Keep in an indirect light, and even more preferably a filtered light, such as a sheer curtain where the light can shine but not burn the leaves in the summertime.
This plant stands about 14" tall in a 5"W white ceramic pot. It's the perfect green accent to any desk or side table.
